Oh, the great plans I had for this week: an intelligence retrospective on the 9/11 attacks; a Chile expert’s account of Nixon, Kissinger and CIA boss Richard Helms musing on the 1973 coup d’etat (also memorialized every September 11), and so on and so forth. Alas, a conspiracy of events, including my Chile expert’s sudden illness and last weekend’s party marking the third anniversary of SpyTalk’s launch, derailed all my grand plans.
Thanks to Contributing Writer Gus Russo, however, we were able to scramble out a piece debunking the widely reported, but utterly ridiculous, “new revelations” about the JFK assassination. (Shame on you, MSM.)
So now we’re playing catch up. Today I recorded a podcast interview with Cindy Storer, a heroic former CIA Al Qaeda expert, on what-might-have-beens 22 years ago this week. That will be out Friday morning. And we’ll soon run a piece on Nixon, Kissinger and the Chile coup when my writer friend John Dinges, author of the newly updated, authoritative The Condor Years: How Pinochet And His Allies Brought Terrorism To Three Continents, fully recovers from Covid.
And there’s other stuff in the pipeline (of course). So, as Ahnold memorably says, “I’ll be back.” Thanks for your patience.
